the total for the entire month of october. president obama talked up the law's benefits in washington today, and brushed aside rising disapproval in public polls. >> more people without insurance have gained insurance, more than three million young americans who've been able to stay on their parents' plan, the more than half a million americans and counting who are poised to get coverage starting on january 1, some for the very first time. and it is these numbers, not the ones in any poll, that will ultimately determine the fate of this law. >> woodruff: republicans said the new numbers on enrollment are cold comfort to millions who've had their coverage canceled or face higher premiums. 9-1-1 phone calls from sandy hook elementary school, during last year's mass shooting, were made public today. the seven recordings revealed police dispatchers in newtown, connecticut, urging callers to take cover, even as gunfire echoed. 20 children and six educators were shot to death by 20-year- old adam lanza. a judge ordered the audio material released under the state's freedom of information law. the
discussing with you a moment ago, i talked to four former aides to president obama. the white house isn't confirming this but all four of them said they expect that president obama will, in fact, attend that ceremony along with other world leaders. we saw president obama come into the briefing room as in the clip that you played tonight where he referred to nelson mandela as an inspiration, an example for him from the earliest phase of his political stirrings as a student at occidental college where he attended an anti-apartheid protest there. of course, nelson mandela is someone who was the first african-american or excuse me, the first african leader, black african leader of south africa which had been governed by a white government, president obama followed in that footstep as the first african-american president of the united states, and he said that he would spend the rest of his life trying to live up to and follow nelson mandela's example. what was so notable about nelson mandela was that he actually achieved in practice the promise that president obama had held out in 2004 at th
,000 simultaneous users and up to 800,000 visits a day. and all this hard work that president obama was talking about, it's starting to pay off. in nova loan, roughly 100,000 people enrolled in obama care through the federal exchange. it's a four-fold increase from the month of october. when all the bad-mouthing was going on. all this cocky talk going on out there about how it was going to fail. oh, but we had one last play left, right? the obama administration said they expect the enrollment to jump dramatically in the coming months. meanwhile, the state exchanges, they're doing even better. how about california alone? 80,000 people in california. now, this is a dirty word. if you connect it to the democrats. private health plan enrollments, 80,000 in the state of california? that's right. and 135,000 have signed up for medicaid. el with, how about new york? in this state, over 250,000 people have completed applications for obama care. over 40,000 people have enrolled in a private plan. and in the state of kentucky, where we were visiting not long ago, now the number is up to over 56,000 peopl
great. nelson mandela became one of the greatest. >> so we heard president obama talking to chris matthews about the importance with the connection with the men people. what was your take? >> i thought it was a fascinating interview. i like to hear the president when he expands on his terms on some level. but i'm going to be honest, i'm a big chris matthews fan. that was the softest voice i ever heard chris matthews speak in. you know, look, i imagine, these interviews when they are done on the other side the folks on the right want to hold the president accountable. the president made an illusion that many msnbc viewers are frustrated from the left. i would like an interview where it wasn't sitting down, letting the president say what he wants to say, but holding him accountable for the frustrations from the party who peel feels he hasn't done enough, whether it's on holding the banks account annual. things that he has the power to do. i would have liked to have seen more of that. >> let's play out a clip. you talk about how he was energized by the college audience he was in fron
was just calling let's talk about harry reid and barack obama and those people. we have been fighting for the scandals that obama has had. we are fighting with the lies that he has had. harry reid has lied. how do we deal with these people? truth and't see the you are just a straightfaced , it is going to take our country down. you can see with the health-care bill. it is a joke. take care. me ask you let before you go. there's a poll out on trust in government. it came out from gallup yesterday. the options were just about always/most of the time, only some of the time/never. i don't think obama is going to do anything. i think that's how he is. he is the downfall for our country. he is a liar. he has lied to the american people. if he can't find that, that he is a liar, then you don't understand life. that poll from gallup noting that 81% of folks answered that they feel like they can trust government only , justf the time and never 19% saying they can trust the government always or some of the time to do what is right. is up next from madison, virginia on our line for independents.

talking about obama care, but this week, he made a big pivot to economic issues talking about raising the minimum wage, extending unemployment benefits. when he did this a couple of years ago and assume d the self-proclaimed mantle of champion of the middle class, it helped him win re-election in 2012. do you think it can help democrats win in 2014? >> what he said there basically, if you don't like my plans for your agenda, give us your plans. i think this pivot to the economy is an attempt to change the subject from obama care, which is so dominating, the news of the past several months. and to rally his base, which is always what he does first. sometimes, that's all he's needed to do, but my sense is he's not going to be able to make this into a big national issue the party can win on because his credibility is so week. in that harvard poll, it was one of those open ended questions about what is your top priority. income inequality was way down the list and i think it is for a lot of people. now, the president of the bully pulpit can sometimes elevate an issue and make it a big iss
, welcome back to "fox news sunday." >> good morning. >> before we get to obama care, i want to talk to you about your trip to detroit this week where you helped open the first of what are going to be several republican outreach centers in inner cities. you also unveiled your plan for economic freedom zones in depressed areas. let's take a look at that plan. you would set a flat individual and corporate tax rate in those depressed areas of 5%. give parents more school choice and education tax credits. and loosen visa rules to encourage foreign sbe pentrepre to open businesses. senator, while critics say those are all good ideas, you've got to pour more government money into those inner cities if you're going to make a difference. >> well, chris, it hasn't worked. i mean, the president poured a trillion dollars into the nation's economy. when you divided it out it was about $400,000 per job. the problem with a government stimulus is you pick the winners and losers. with this stimulus that i'm talking about, a free market stimulus, you simply leave the money in the hands of those who earned i

is also freaking out. >> we were talking a few minutes ago about obama care. and you mentioned it's the law of the land. if it's the law of the land, the president shouldn't keep ignoring the law. a president under a constitutional system doesn't have the ability to pick and choose which laws to follow and that's the same pattern you see in dictatorial society where it says ignore the law, go with the power of the president instead of the written law. >> the president's a dictator. you know, they're running out of talking points when they turn to fear. and now creepy uncle sam is back. the group backed by billionaires is again trying to scare young people from buying insurance. so why the freakout? because the law is working. 27,000 people enrolled in health care plans through the federal website just on tuesday. 56,000 signed up over three days. and the demand's even higher. more than 3.7 million people visited the site this week. these are real people who are getting covered. >> helen signed up for the market place wednesday. she's a single mom who's self-employed and putting he

. generally and more specifically they did talk about president obama and said there are times he doesn't enforce laws that he didn't think are proper like immigration laws but has made changes to his health care law by making a statement or something posted in a white house blog. george washington university law professor testified today and said no matter who the president is that, actually sets a very dangerous presence precedent. here's what he said. >> the center of gravity is shifting that. makes it unstable. within that system you have the rise of a uber presidency. there could be no greater danger for individual liberty. >> he said in hithe founders wo unhappy and surprised by what's happening now. but democrats on the committee said hey, presidents from both parties have done this and as long as we have gridlock on capitol hill president obama is likely to continue doing it. >> okay, shannon, thank you. >>> an economic life preserver for a city would be a financial disaster for many people who gave much of their lives to that city. correspondent mike tobin reports tonight on th

attorney are talking about the flaws of obama care, is it these two doouling scripts this we hear every day up to the midterm election? >> i think so. i think obama care is a mess. i voted to repeal it and sent down there to try to stop. it and it is implemented porly and it is not about a website but a plan that is taking away a choice. and cutting half a trillion from medicare and a host of things that are wrong with it. i find it hypocriticical that you have staffers and senators and congressman with special perks. they have in house concierge services that allow for assistance and unlike many people in the private sector who are affected and it is only just begun as brit said himself. >> 5 million people received cancellation letters. they are angry and chances are they will not vote democratic. a year from now millions more will sign up. and maybe millions more as the administration is hoping? . and maybe they will cancel each other out and do the republicans need to articulate a real plan? do they need to come up with a plan that replaces the affordable care act? >> there are plans. w

opposition. >> let me ask you, president obama made news talking to chris matthews last night, and talking about the divisiveness in this country. listen to this take on it. >> the american people are good and they're decent, and yes, sometimes we get very divided. partly because our politics and our media. specifically tries to divide them. and splinter them. >> our media. we try to divide the people and splinter them. >> what's happened is some in the media, not very many, but some in the media have concluded this fiasco of obama care is simply indefensible, especially when the man lied dozens of times to the american people, and there are some in the liberal media, some liberals who are saying this has got to be covered. that's his reaction. how dare you? >> you think he's getting ticked off at the negative coverage? >> he's had 100% sycophantic coverage and the wheels are coming off everywhere. even his most ardent supporters, some are saying he's gone too far. >> hope you feel better. >> thank you. i got it all, got my tea, got my honey, i got everything. but as it turns out, this pro
. the reboot of obama care continues as the president talks about the economic benefits of this law in washington, d.c. yesterday he defended the affordable care act and suggested if the republicans have better ideas they should bring them to the table. >> the bottom line is this law is working and will work into the future. we are just getting started with the exchanges. just getting started with the market places. we are not going to walk away from it. if i have to fight another three years to make sure the law works, that's what i'll do. i will work with anybody to implement and improve this law effectively. you got good ideas, bring them to me. let's go. but we are not repealing it as long as i'm president. i want everybody to know that. >> if what the president just said is true, then that's a marked change from the first time it went through. republicans had scores of amendments that harry reid kill and never let them discuss it on the floor and never got a vote on the floor. if the president now wants to actually work with republicans as well as democrats on the health care b
to put it. >> president obama talking about it the other day. >> but the fact is the situation's gotten worse in the last three years. more than 90% of the income increases over the past three years have gone to the top 1%. so it's possible that you have -- look, these are great numbers. but the fact is that a lot of people are not feeling it, even if they have a job. so i don't think that it's just the jobless rate that people look at, because only jobless rate that counts is the one in your household. a lot of people may have a job, but it's not enough of a job, or it doesn't pay enough, or it's only part-time, whatever it is, and that's why you see the differential between, hey, look, the jobless rate is going down, and people going, i think we're on the wrong track. >> candy crowley, the brilliant candy crowley, thank you for joining me. tune in for stre"state of the u" at 9:00 in the morning. >> here's breaking news we have to get to now. as we reported a couple minutes ago, as many as six people taken to a hospital in mexico for radiation poisoning. think of the timing here becaus

is an important point to keep in mind. we're talking about a health care plan in terms of obama care, affordable care act, whatever you want to call it, that's going to provide health care coverage for tens of millions of americans that did not have it previously. you're talking about people who had pre-existing conditions that were not able to get health care coverage before let's not pretend like this notion of deductibles and co-pays and out-of-pocket expenses is somehow a new phenomenon. that had been the norm of our health care practice. >> i want to tell you this, it's not the notion of deductibles or the notion of premiums. it's not the notion of doctors and hospitals. it's the fact, it's the reality. it's the volume. it's the level. that's what's missing. and you know why it's missing? because whatever government does with their rationing and their controls, they do it wrong. we've learned this for thousands of years. and i can't give you a lecture tonight. chris kofinis, you take this emanuel guy, put him in moth balls, buddy. mike slater, great to see you. and dr. scott gottlieb, as al
. is the biggest challenge the white house faces. tot: if you want to talk legacy -- about obama's legacy and how he's doing with these issues, specifically healthcare.gov, some of the criticism he has received, give us a call. guest: with the national security agency's eavesdropping ask posers your car he was saying here is not aware that the united states is eavesdropping on the german chancellor's personal cell phone. obviously the glitches to the health care website is another that he has acknowledged he was not prepared for. on their own, these may seem relatively minor, but added up you get the perception of a white house and a management team there that is trying to do a lot of different things at the same time and not speaking for the american people. he wasn't speaking for insurance companies. this does make him a liar. i just want to talk about legacy. it can be before he leaves office or after. is going to rule obama and hillary. they were trying to protect votes through consistent lives using various people as spokespeople and also, the perception they did not need -- they were so suc

care act, obama care right now and people are talking about it all over the country and it's a great opportunity for republicans. for to us have a huge year like we did in 1994 we'll have to have the sort of alternatives that bill is talking about. do you hear that, whether it's republican governor's association or in washington now, there is that understanding. i would be stunned if you didn't see a variety of alternatives. >> david gregory for those running for re-election and all the negative messages that are in this narrative right now in terms of obama care how fair are they and how hard of a slog will it be for the white house to try to turn this around? >> i think it will be difficult. ultimately they have to prove successful with the website. they have to have more positive stories that flood the marketplace and the media. look at story after story, morning after morning we're having this conversation of what the difficulties are, what the andy poling is, what we simply are confused by. they are going the need so much success even that's going to lag before they get to a pla
talking to our viewers about president obama. should he fire somebody about the rollout of the health-care website? i think people ought to and think about every major project that has sector, to the private as well as in the public sector. it is impossible to start something as big as this without problems. boeing or yout can look at microsoft. when they introduce a new operating system. windows 8, windows 6 -- there is always problems. this focusing on the first couple of months on everything work simplyt quite is losing sight of the forest through the trees. i think that the president could in the end make a decision about that -- if there was somebody who is egregious and their behavior that is one thing. if they were doing their best, i see any kind of glitch as a reason to be fired. you are going to have them. is -- it is impossible to do this perfectly. you were critical of the president's chief of staff and you andunication with others about informing you of on with the law, before it was rolled out. has that improved? guest: tremendously. part of saying it is so they weerstan

's paranoid talk. of course you can trust obama care. in the state of california you can't. the obama care exchanges have been passing out personal information to insurance companies which then market that information using that information, they market their services. >> these aren't even people that signed up. these are people that took a cursory glance, maybe filled out part of an application. >> they're getting phone calls from insurance companies saying, hey, we understand you're looking for insurance. how can we be of assistance. would you like to pay us? peter levy, covered california, listen to this quote, see if you are comforted by this. he's using comforting words. he said i can imagine some people may be upset, but i can see a lot of people will be comforted and relieved at getting the help that they need by navigating a confusing process. >> and the reason they're saying they're doing this is because, of course, they're lined on their enrollment deadlines that they're trying to meet. also they're saying that we're not giving out any personal information like social security in

's cardinal dolan on "meet the press" saying we don't like obama care anymore. >> the more the pope talks, the more the cardinals will understand it's god's will. unfortunately clergy people have to be concerned with their congregation. if we have the pope, we wouldn't have cuts in food stamps, we would have immigration, we would have health care, kids would be educated, we wouldn't have two million people locked up in jail and we wouldn't have drones destroying the lives of people that we don't know. god bless the pope. and i'm glad the cardinal hears him. i wish other religions would hear them, because there's a vacuum in congress. capitalism is the best thing in the world, but it's not set up to take care of the poor. >> congressman charlie rangel, great to have you here. i think you can easily invest in green ba nananabananas. thanks for your time. >>> joining me now, editor of the "washington post" wonkblog, ezra klein. good to see you, buddy. it was a big weekend for the administration. now they're touting these big gains, coming out with nbc news being able to verify these numbers.

, everybody talks about president obama. they are blaming president obama for this and that. he cannot do it alone. he cannot do anything by himself. thank you. guest: on your last point, that is right. there has to be a bipartisan solution to our budget problems. aspect about the budget deal seems to be developing, it would be an instance in which the democrats and republicans have agreed on something and the white house is presumably ok with. it would be something that has bipartisan support. i the food stamp question, think food stamp costs went up with the economy. thatthe economy went down, raises foodstamp expenditures because more people need the assistance. some of that is coming down. there is still a need out there. the farm bill is being debated on capitol hill and how much food stands would be cut, there is a big difference between the house plan and the senate plan. it is not clear what the cut wouuld bld be. people think there is a lot of fraud and abuse. the economy is improving. some people perceive less of a need. they are going to work something out. they are far apart.
, to sell the benefits of obama care to the american public. but what's the new message today? >> reporter: well, you know, talking about medicaid specifically in the state of north carolina, there are some states where you have seen there have been roadblocks to actually get it going. they say inside the white house that once you get it expanded, it's going to mean a lot more people being covered. but republicans are saying it's not just a cost issue. it's the question of when you look at these enrollment numbers, is it because people are actually signing up and paying into the system, or is it folks just getting medicaid? is that beefing up the numbers and sort of distorting the picture? gretchen? >> all right. ed henry live for us at the white house. thanks so much. >> good to see you. >>> more trouble for obama care now with the word the federal health exchange is now determining that some people with salaries as high as $80,000 a year, $80,000, are eligible for medicaid when clearly they are not. here's why that's a problem. it leaves them with little chance to get the subdy dized ins

-- verifyble. when this bill was being talked about again, back in 2009, shortly after mr. obama became our 44th president, it was estimated that there was something like 47 million people in this country, mr. speaker, who through no fault of their own except couldn't afford it didn't have health insurance. well, when you really go through those numbers and i have a book with me that i'm going to reference and i want to give proper attribution, the name of the book is "the top 10 myths of american health care: a citizen's guide." maybe it could be a patient's guide. and this is written by sali pipes -- sally pipes. and she talks about in this book, she talks about that 47 million. something like 15 million of hose 47 million make more than $50,000 a year. indeed, some make more than $75,000 a year, mr. speaker. and they've just decided that they don't want health insurance, that they will pay as they go. and there's nothing wrong with that. i don't advise it. i think everybody should at least have catastrophic coverage. but be that as it may, this is america. we have to insist on enjoying our
